Germantown Overview

Set in the quiet rolling hills of eastern Shelby County is the city of Germantown, Tennessee. Bordering Memphis to the west, this quiet community known for its strength of character and civic pride allows its 40,000 residents to enjoy the convenience of access to big city life without the hustle and bustle (and taxes!) that often come with it.

With Interstate 40 just to the north and busy Poplar Avenue (Highway 72) branching across the southern part of the city, Germantown is well-situated for those working in Memphis, and popular attractions like the Mississippi River, Mud Island, and Beale Street are less than a half hour’s drive away.

Germantown Entertainment

The city manages to blend modern style with a sense of history, with retail and specialty shops operating in century-old storefronts and houses along avenues lined with lofty pines and oaks. The city has a long-standing love of horses, and its relationship with the Germantown Charity Horse Show is memorialized in the multiple artist-designed statues of horses dotting the landscape, each bearing a different theme ranging from the historic to the whimsical.

Exclusive open-air shopping centers like the Shops of Saddle Creek offer independent and chain retailers found nowhere else in the county, tucked into a congenial, city strolling atmosphere with a collection of unique, upscale restaurants.
